The action of love by Joyce Meyer

Joyce Meyer: welcome to today’s program.  We’re talking about the action of love. Love is an action. And if you take the steps to express love to people, it will improve your life and the lives of those that you love. Pastor Tommy Barnett joins me today to discuss this topic. Well, pastor, it’s wonderful to have you back.

Pastor Tommy Barnett:  yes, and I love the subject!

Joyce Meyer: I think you and I could sit and talk about this just like… I love to hear practical stories of how people actually showed love to somebody because it’s very important to me — and I actually feel like god’s given me a mandate to try to do this with the years that he’s going to let me remain here — it’s very important to me that people everywhere learn to begin to show love in their everyday life — at work, the marketplace, at school, to people you meet on the street, people you know, but especially even with people you don’t know. We need to really realize that jesus said, “you are the light of the world, and don’t put your light under a bushel.” so I want us today to talk about the practical side of love. Why don’t you tell us some things; maybe you’ve got some good stories you can tell us, some things that have happened to you over the years.

Pastor Barnett: I love what you said:  you’ve got to say it. It’s important that you say what you feel.  First of all, when you say what you feel, it makes you feel better. When I say “I love you” it touches my emotions. Psychologists tell us today that it’s not how much we love people that matters; it’s how much they feel that we love them. That’s why it’s important that you touch your children, give them a hug, pat them on the back, wrestle with your little children. Joyce Meyer Ministries tells us about that touch, that feel, means so much. Several years ago there was a young man who came to my office. He was a big ol’ strapping guy. He played football — big. He sat down in my office and he wanted an appointment with me. I said, “what’s on your heart?” he said, “well, pastor, uh, uh, well, uh, uh…” and the guy stuttered and stammered and just kept on.

Joyce Meyer Online – Finally I said, “what is it?” he just kept on stuttering. Finally he just blurted out, “I love you!” and jumped up and ran out of the room, and I had to chase the guy down. Come to find out that his dad had never told him that he ever loved him.
